Thanks to a short story, I just had something hand-delivered from Norway to Ottawa. I’m still boggled.

Alrighty then,  this morning I received my first piece of fan e-mail...in response to my previous blog "All power to the 6-legged, footless, mutant chickens..." At least, I THINK it's fan mail. Well, it MUST be, because this  person used some of my all-time favorite superlatives: "...
